glitches. will somebody be held responsible. and what about kathleen sebelius and her coming to the house of congress to testify? >> she ain't in the house of representative and will not be for sometime. she knows she will have to face uncomfortable questioning after why after three years this thing doesn't work and she will face that from the senate democrats who will do it in a spirit of highway- minded regret as opposed to the republicans that come down on her like a pack of hyennas. she will wait and talk to the folks in the senate after a cooling off period. >> your analogies are on fire, chris. i enjoy them very much. but on a serious level, is this the level of inepiitude we should expect? glitches, we don't know when it will be working or how many people will be able to enroll and not just visit the web site. >> when consumer report said don't try right now and come back later, this is the problem that has consequences for all americans. not only that the data is corrupted when it gets to the insurance companies. the problem is, they are trying to sell a product that is free

time that screws up this bad is getting fired. why isn't kathleen sebelius fired? >> thanks for having me, sean. she should be fired. this is totally unacceptable. they have had over three years to do this. the president himself, five days before the website launched said it would be just as easy as going to kayak.com and booking a flight. this is the yet another broken promise with this president and this health care law. marcia mentioned people losing their plans which he said wouldn't happen. we had 300,000 people in florida who had their planned cancelled today because of obama care. >> yeah. on average, this is what i don't understand. maybe this goes to the heart of the debate we have had. if men are seeing on average a 99% increase. women a 62% increase. look at delaware. if you're 27 years old, 99.9% increase. why aren't people demanding the savings the president promised? >> i think as people get their renewal notices that's what we'll see. obama care started out to be an $863 billion access to insurance program for individuals that didn't have access. that's what they

possible. >> jen, i want to move on to hhs secretary kathleen sebelius. she was there at the event today with the president. there's a growing list of people calling for her to resign. does the president think that she should keep her job given these glitches? >> yes, he does. he has a lot of confidence in kathleen sebelius. implementing this law is a hard piece of policy business. it's a hard piece of technology business. and it's very hard politically and kathleen has taken a lot of hits over the years. and she can very much handle them. as the president said today, the health care is more than a website. we've created a marketplace where people can get insurance. insurance is very popular. the marketplace is working well. people are applying, enrolling. so overall, we think that this is working. let alone, people already receiving benefits from the health care law. >> jen, let me just jump in really quickly because we're going to run out of time. even robert gibbs, the president's former press secretary has said that someone should lose their job over this. so if not kathleen sebelius

house democrats and kathleen sebelius will be in that meeting as well. cabinet secretaries and white house officials will hit the road to sell the enrollment. among them dallas, houston, orlando, and detroit. kathleen sebelius is expected to step in the line of fire last week but last night came to the president's defense in a new primetime interview. >> first knew that there was a problem? >> well, i think it became clear fairly early on. the first couple of days. >> so not before that, though? not before october 1st there was no concern at that point in the white house or at hhs? >> i think that we talked about having testing going forward. >> the final front four, the appointment of the new glitch czar, omb director jeff zientz will lead the so-called tech surge. david axelrod had this advice for zientz and the white house on "the last word." >> as i'm sure they are kicking a bunch of folks in the butt every day to make sure that what needs to be done is being done. >> kicking folks in the put. nbc white house correspondent peter alexander joins me now. peter, we just heard that k

growing calls from republicans in congress for kathleen sebelius to formally testify about the issues about the site, even democrats saying that the health and human services secretary's testimony is a matter of when, not if. >> the secretary's view that she doesn't have to testify, doesn't have to answer questions, is too busy for that is unsustainable and she won't be able to sustain it. >> ultimately secretary sebelius will testify before congress, you know that. >> joining me with a preview of the president's remarks, peter alexander. so, peter, what website changes are in the works and what specifically do we understand that the president is going to give as a reason to why this was so botched on the rollout? >> yeah, thomas, i doubt in terms of the latter, i doubt he'll lay out exactly what went wrong. he'll probably focus less on the problems and more on the solutions. you noted that tech surge, the health and human services putting out that blog statement acknowledging some of the changes that are already taking place right now. let me show you if i can right now one of the ch

trying to set the agenda for what kathleen sebelius will be asked during next week's hearing. what's actually gone wrong with the health care site. what will it be fixed, how bill the administration delay the individual mandate, how many people have enrolled, why didn't the white house have a good backup plan. this is what they're saying they will not be asking of her. i disagree with that. i think they're going to go right for her with those tough questions to say who was advising the president on this? who was letting him think that october 1 that they were going to be ready for this? >> yeah, i think they should be very tough on secretary sebelius. look, there was a management failure. and from my reporting, i know the white house didn't know. i don't even actually think secretary sebelius knew how bad it was. i think in not only in hhs but in the centers on medicare and medicaid services, which is where a lot of this effort was located, there was simply a shading of the bad news. a lot of people were keeping bad news from superiors or superiors were keeping it from their superior

about whether or not the secretary of health and human services kathleen sebelius will testify. they are going to move forward with the hearing this week. the white house and administration are saying that the secretary does want to testify but there are scheduling issues. that will play out but that will be the kind of thing that republicans will try to seize on. where are the problems and should individuals be penalized if they can't enroll in time. and looking at questions that they feel are unanswered by the administration. so i would say making up for lost ground period for conservatives and republicans who want to focus on what they see are flaws in at least the rollout, if not the law itself. so that will give them new things to talk about and try to forget about that shutdown 16 days we all lived through. >> that's so long ago. we don't even have to worry about that anymore. thanks, gang, appreciate it. i want to bring in our political panel, chicago sun times washington bureau cheat, sweet and michael smerconnish and also the author of deadly spin and insurance company insid
